You may think that the photos you post online are just for you and your friends to see. But these days nothing is really, truly private. One mom found out the hard way after she posted a photo of herself on her friends-only Facebook page. Someone had taken the photo and a few others and uploaded it to a pornography site. She posted her feelings about it on her Facebook page.

"That time my bump went viral in a not so good way.
This bump pic along with around 15 other pictures of mine ended up on an online "preggophilia" site. Which is a porn site for people who like pregnant women.
I see so many people upload their bump pics and now I just gasp and hope to God they don't get into the hands of someone they shouldn't.
We shouldn't have to worry about people stealing our photos, but unfortunately it happens ALL THE TIME!
When I was scrolling through this God-awful site trying to find where this thread was, I saw some messed up stuff. People who were uploading pictures of their wife to other users, brother-in-laws uploading pictures of their sister-in-laws and women uploading pictures of their work colleagues!!! I literally couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Who was I to blame for this? People would say I should only blame myself for uploading "personal pictures" and that it was my own fault (even though my profile was then private). I see it differently. I didn't care that someone had screen shot my photo to show someone, it's was what they did with my photo/s that made me physically sick to my stomach.
WHYYY should we have to sit and worry about this when uploading a photo on our social media sites?
Please be cautious about who follows/adds you. Block them if they look creepy."
Be careful what you share!
